- Why Students Hate Word Problems. Friday. 2:00PM. Terrace Ballroom 4.
I'm going to put this talk on ice after NCTM. If you caught it at either of the California conferences, I'd check out Al Cuoco's session instead.
There will be a math teacher tweetup on Friday at 6:00PM at The Farmer's Cabinet.
With infinite time and infinite clones I'd catch all of these sessions. The usual biases: nothing with an exclamation point in the title, no TI technology, no SMART technology, no vendors. If I missed anything (maybe even your own session) please make a case in the comments.
